BIG News for Venture Trust

We're thrilled to announce that Venture Trust has secured funding from the BIG Lottery Fund Scotland's Life Transitions Fund.

Venture Trust’s Inspiring Young Futures programme will receive £696,354 over three years to support care leavers and carers in Glasgow and Inverclyde. The project will help young people aged 16 to 25 to improve their confidence and self esteem as they make the transition to adulthood. As well as support in looking for jobs and courses, the young people will learn how to manage relationships, communicate effectively and sustain a tenancy.

David Haines, Funding & Contracts Officer at Venture Trust said “We are absolutely thrilled to be receiving funding from the Big Lottery Fund, because it will enable us to give over 180 young people a real chance to take control of their futures. We’re excited and energised by the prospect of guiding our beneficiaries through challenging life transitions, and equipping them with life skills, self-belief, and the confidence to fulfil their potential. Thanks to this grant’s long-term stability, we will be able to create more effective and wider-reaching support networks for greater numbers of beneficiaries in the coming years.”
